Ironman Louisville 2011 is in the books and I can now proudly say I am an Ironman!! I'll detail a full race report sometime later this week, but I wanted to send out a quick update. I ended up having a much better day than I anticipated on all 3 legs and it was about as perfect a race as I could have envisioned. It's been hard to put what I'm feeling into words so I'll save that for another day. I want to soak it all in and really appreciate the moment.
My official finish time was 12:45:53. Unbelievable day in Louisville, Kentucky. Thank you to all who sent words of encouragement, followed along on race day, and have been here throughout this journey. I also want to send out a special thank you to my parents who made the trek to Louisville to help make my dream a reality. It was amazing seeing them out on the course and they really played a huge role in my race weekend. Dream big. Work hard. Make it happen.
